Welcome to IDGTE

Our mission is to serve our membership by advancing the design, development, manufacture, application, operation and maintenance of reciprocating internal combustion engines, gas turbines and their related fields.

Are you a Member

Join a unique professional organisation dedicated to your industry and extend your Continuous Professional Development (CPD) by participating in IDGTE meetings, technical visits and networking opportunities.


A call for Technical Papers

Your opportunity to get published

The IDGTE technical papers programme is now being developed for the coming year.  Members and others are invited to submit abstracts for papers to be delivered at one of our ordinary meetings.  These meetings are held four times a year and all papers presented are reviewed and subsequently published in the Power Engineer, the IDGTE official journal. If you or your company has a topic you would like to have published then here is your opportunity.

To be part of the programme for the coming year you should send in your abstracts for review to "The Papers Committee" as soon as possible.  Do not delay as this is your opportunity to get published and have your paper peer reviewed.

2013 Operational report

The Institution has compiled this unique report since 1923 and continues today to bring a compilation of independent “user focus” data for conventional prime mover types, as well as expanding to report on alternative fuels and comparison to alternative prime mover technologies. Prime movers for industrial, marine and rail traction are applications of interest.

Its value depends on the quality of input and we encourage all those interested in the compiled data on a worldwide basis, to participate.It is not necessary to be a member of the Institution to contribute or to receive a copy of the report.

Return Forms and Guidance Notes can be downloaded here.

Annual Luncheon           We’re on the move …

The 2015 IDGTE annual luncheon is to be held at a new venue -

Grange Tower Bridge Hotel.

The event will have a new, updated format too. We are introducing a

morning session of seminars/workshops covering a range of subjects so

there should be something which is relevant to everyone. This will be

followed by the usual style luncheon with an impressive line-up of

interesting speakers.

Make a diary date now - and be there. Help us make “the best

luncheon in the business” even better. Tickets will be available in

the new year.
